Wideen, Slomp earn Athlete of the Week honours

Tiffany Wideen and Scott Slomp were named Pronghorn Subway Athletes of the Week following weekend Canada West athletics action.

A fourth-year centre on the Pronghorns women's rugby team, Wideen led the Pronghorns to a third place finish at the Canada West Championship tournament, earning her recognition as the female Athlete of the Week.

Wideen scored a team high 21 points in the Horns two games. In addition to kicking the ball well all weekend, for both points and field position, Wideen also led the Horns' defensive effort.

In the club's heartbreaking 29-18 semifinal loss to the University of Calgary Dinos, Wideen kicked two penalty goals and converted one of the Horns two tries on the day. On Sunday, in the third place game, Wideen scored one try and hit four converts to lead the Horns to a 33-22 victory over the UBC Thunderbirds.

On the men's side, Slomp, a fourth-year defender, provided fantastic defence and exceptional leadership for the Horns, who lost both games on the road this past weekend.

Slomp has played every minute of every game since transferring from Lethbridge College after one season and in 13 games this season he has recorded five shots on goal.
